Moore Park Gardens

East Redfern, Sydney, NSW, Australia

data, awards, description

Winner of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects Presidents Award (1999), Moore Park Gardens demonstrates the myriad benefits of passive design.

Leading the way Located on the 2.6-hectare former Reschs Brewery site in Sydney’s East Redfern, Moore Park Gardens is one of Australia’s leading medium-density residential developments. AJ+C were the masterplanners, architects and interior designers for this project, creating an integrated new neighbourhood, which balances community needs with quality passive design.

A community both liveable and sustainable The development showcases sophisticated urban design principles and extensive use of Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD). Its two towers utilise a crossover design, giving 90 per cent of the apartments cross-ventilation and a northern-orientated living area. Featuring a series of publicly accessible open spaces, landscaped courtyards and a central linking road, Moore Park Gardens integrates seamlessly with its surrounds. The high- and low-rise apartment buildings house a diverse mix of 560 apartments and a range of community facilities.
